This is a song I wrote about meeting the great Sonny Rollins when I was a "kid" (teenager) in the 80s. Sonny really was super kind - I'll never forget going "backstage" (back tent actually) and meeting him. I'm sure the friends I was with (Steve, Brian, Brad and others) were pretty jacked too. This is a work-in-progress (home) studio tracking session. Not sure if this will be the final vocal take - it was my 3rd "scratch" take. After the 2nd take I decided to do a take with a camera rolling. I'm still not sure if I'll dub a flugelhorn solo over the changes or if I'll invite a guest for a tenor sax solo. Since the song is about Sonny, a tenor sax solo seems right...we'll see. This next collection of songs I'm working on will be fairly stripped down - with me on piano & vocals, some little trumpet/flugelhorn solos here and there. I'm steering clear of the trappings of drums, bass, guitar at least for this round of songs (about a dozen or so) just to let the "song" be the focus rather than the production.
